Fielding four characters in an episode is a dream come true. Executing it is fine challenge. Especially when your session is moving FAST. Each one needs to sound distinct, and whether they have 1 line or 100 lines, they should be a fully fleshed out character. Plus, you never know when one of them might make another appearance down the road!
I've done multiple characters before, but today a couple of finer points hit home:
A. Precision: Making sure you land the take with clarity of intention, emotion, and vocalization.
B. Economy: Giving a good read, but not over-extending it. Spending too long on one thing doesn't leave room for...
C. Variety: The spice of life, and a healthy offering of useable options for the creative team.
All things I was well aware of, but they get amplified when you're running at the speed of the session! Happy to have the reminder, and excited to do it all again.
